The standard talent configuration listed at the top of this page is suggested.
Two phases boss with some cleave and a single target burst requirement.
Shadowfury can be used to stun the adds after they spawn.
Demonic Circle can also be used to trivialize some movements and to move outside of the ring of fire in phase 2.
To cleave the periodic adds efficiently, make use of Inevitable Demise Drain Life cleave with Soul Rot, otherwise, just dot adds with Agony for additional shards while maintaining Unstable Affliction on the boss for Doom Blossom procs.
For more information, please refer to our Eranog guide.
A pure single target-oriented build is suggested:
Single target encounter.
For more information, please refer to our Terros guide.
The Primal Council
Sustained cleave build is suggested:
Council fight with a single phase and four targets.
Touch the pool of fire once when you have 5 stacks of the debuff during Primal Blizzard.
Sennarth, the Cold Breath
A primarily single target build with Wrath of Consumption is suggested.
Two phases single target boss with frequent adds.
Due to frequent adds spawning there is opportunity for extremely high uptime on Wrath of Consumption.
Single phase boss with multiple adds.
For more information, please refer to our DatheaAscended guide.
A primarily single target build with Vile Taint cleave is suggested.
Two phases single target encounter with occasional adds.
Pool resources for when the boss will hit phase 2 at 66% and 33% of HP when 2 elemental will spawn and need to be burned down as quickly as possible.
For more information, please refer to our Kurog Grimtotem guide.
Single phase encounter with few adds present for most of the encounter.
For more information, please refer to our Broodkeeper Diurna guide.
Raszageth the Storm-Eater
A single target build with Sow the Seeds to handle intermission adds is suggested.
Three-phase single target boss with some adds during the two Intermissions.
While cooldown management can vary between different groups due to total raid DPS, it is important to pool resources for Focused Charge at the beginning of phase 2.
Cycling defensive cooldowns will help alleviate the pressure on healers so make good use of Dark Pact, Unending Resolve and consider even spending a Soulburn on Healthstone or Drain Life in a dire situation.
